Aap ka Suroor... humaara torture..
Jul 05, 2007 06:12 PM 2317 Views





Ahem. Yes… I did go see this... Strictly to watch the

acclaimed Himesh on screen and get a good laugh out of him… Well at least he

did not disappoint…

What could be worse in this "moviee"? The direction, the

acting, the singing, the editing, the dialogues, the choreography, the story,

the all powerful Nose? Let's  be fair. They

were all equally horrifying. A half baked story of the "greatest rock star in

the world"; Himesh Reshammiya (HR) played by himself is arrested for a murder. Of

course, it's a mistake as he so shrilly screams out to the world. And while

sitting in prison, he has a flashback… How to meet a girl in 15 days and fall

in love with her and how to get the stern dad to agree to  marriage and annoy him the next day by

having a not so nice murder charge on his head. Oh and then he escapes from

prison, holding the dead girls dad hostage.

Oh did I mention he struck a deal

with a bald guy who's pissed when he cancels, who also has a "sexy" lawyer

colleage, the great Mallika Sherawat, who's madly lusting over HR and wants him

in her bed 5 minutes ago. Well the dad gets killed by a henchman, HR convinces

the girlfriends dad to give him a chance even though she's getting married the

next day, manages to prove he's innocent and probably lives happily ever after

with the girl.

Now that the facts are straight, lets analyse this… Firstly,

the movie is amazingly secular... Absolutely annoying to all religions on an

equal level. The flick starts to an eerie chant of salaam walekum, moves on to

the Gayatri Mantra when HR meets Miss Right (oh so appropriate) , involves a

dead Parsi girl, an inter racial marriage, a nasal Punjabi type song and

probably some other stuff I didn't notice.  And there's HR himself.. larger than his

already annoying ubiquitous self and proving his acting to be just as good as

his singing… The guy can't act or put across a dialogue decently to save his

life, let alone that of his Miss Right, played by Hansika Motwani, who is

apparently rumoured to be 14 or 15… and trust me she looks it. Himesh romancing

this super tall kid with a heavily painted face, who keeps crying, looks a pedophile

to the core.

Oh my the horror, the terror…HR showing way too much

cleavage with deeper necklines than any female in the movie,  the wannabe car chase scene, the ridiculous

rickshaw-wala scene bang in the middle of a serious scene that looks copied from

Taxi 9211 (hopelessly slapstick this one was), a drunk scene that has HR

dancing like a wannabe Travolta on Ecstasy, the slutty lawyer who apparently

has a side profession as a club dancer, a murderer pulling off a mask that is a

replica of Himesh's face (I mean, when was the last time you saw that!!??), way

too many songs which of course had to be sung through that nose of his, his

HUGE ego which showed by the dozens of girls lusting behind him, the title of "greatest

rock star in the world" (Greatest? Rock? Star?) and the millions of fans lined

up to see a horrific show in what looks like Carnegie Hall or something, cheesy

dialogues about how the girl made him smile again and a close up of HR laughing

uncontrollably… God help us all…

And a mention which just MUST be made… It's bad enough that Himesh

was crooning the Gayatri mantra like it was a love song and strumming away to Dard-e-dil…

but right in the end, when he is proved innocent (yes.. sorry for spoiling the

ending for those who haven't already seen this slapstick flick) and gets the

girl he's been battling for the whole time, the screen suddenly switches to him

grinding and twisting with Sherawat wearing as little as ever to the nasal

strains of Mehbooba Mehbooba in a casino and trying to turn on all the ladies

watching only to have them cringe in their seats… RD Burman is turning in his

grave… Can't you just feel it??

So there you have it. Ludicrous, mediocre, but a huge laugh

riot. This cannot classify as a movie. It is a pure "Moviee". Caps off to

Reshammiya. He has managed to maintain his standard.

My rating- 0.5/10, merely for HR's sheer audacity at

thinking that he could pull this off to be the serious thriller or whatever he

thought it was, and for his sidekick friend who was kind of cute and kept his

mouth shut a whole lot longer than Himesh did.
